Nevada: Culinary Union knows what they want for dinner

Well, the all-mighty Culinary Worker's Union has spoken from on high, bestowing Barack Obama with their all-powerful endorsement. This follows the smaller Nevada SEIU's endorsement of Obama earlier in the day.
Which means no love for John Edwards.
Hillary did manage to steal some of Obama's thunder in Nevada. U.S. Congresswoman Shelley Berkley, who had pledged alongside Harry Reid not to endorse a candidate in the primary, did so just after the Culinary Union made its endorsement. Now, it comes as no surprise that Berkley is a Hillary supporter; one only needs to look at her campaign donations. But it definitely was her and the Clinton campaign's intention to steal some of Obama's thunder, and at least get a mention alongside Barack.
